Checking out a module from a CVS repository

Modules can be defined in the CVSROOT/modules file of a CVS repository. To check out such a module from a CVS repository to the Workbench:

  1. Switch to the CVS Repository Exploring perspective or add the CVS Repositories view to the current perspective.
  2. In the CVS Repositories view, expand the repository location.
  3. Expand HEAD and select the modules that you want to add to the Workbench. Note: Modules appear as root folders of the repository but are associated with the CVS module icon icon.
  4. From the pop-up menu select Check Out. This will checkout the module into one or more projects in the local workspace, depending on how the module is defined in the repository.

Note: Defined modules can also be checkout out using the Checkout Wizard.
